We Are Featured in Today’s Sun-Herald and The Sunday Age! (Oct 9, 2011)

Featured in Sun Herald's Sunday Age

I’m happy to announce that we’re featured in Australia’s The Sun-Herald (newspaper in Sydney, published every Sunday) and The Age (Melbourne’s daily newspaper) today! :D

Just last month, I was invited to write an article for The Sunday Life (a supplement that’s distributed as part of The Sun-Herald and The Age) on how to live a more productive life. The article below is the result!

Life Makeovers (Oct 9, 2011)
*Click image for larger version. Special thanks to reader Charles for buying a copy and helping to scan it! Also special thanks to other readers in Australia for buying a copy and offering to help scan too! You guys are all my angels! ♥

For readers in Australia, you can find the article can be found in the “Life” supplement in The Sun-Herald (for those in Sydney) and The Sunday Age (for those in Melbourne), page 27 (out of 40 pages).

The Sun-Herald has a readership of 1,159,000 (as of December 2009), while The Sunday Age has a readership of 695,000, so that’s nearly 2 million people in total! Its target audience is generally more educated and affluent readers, so it’s definitely in line with the readers we want to reach out with PE. So a special thank you to The Sunday Life for this opportunity!

    Congrats Celes. That’s awesome :) Unfortunately it’s past 9pm here in Australia. I don’t think I’ll be able to get my hands on a copy :(

    Keep inspiring :)

      Thanks Adam! :D That’s a pity – I meant to have the post up earlier today so the Australian readers could get a copy, but unfortunately my internet is down (I’m actually writing this from a cafe right now). At least there’s a scan above. :)

    Congrats Celes,

    Your great passion for people is spreading faster and further by the day. Keep up the good work. You are impacting and inspiring more lives.

    Thankyou Celes,

    I thoroughly enjoyed the article with your 8 favourite tips. I am inspired to work toward these targets. I’ve tried these devices in the past yet I am pursuing this time to keep the list in visible proximity to my workplace and home office to keep direction and be goal driven to reach targets.
    Lifecoach’s like yourself are an asset in this modern world where our lives experience a 24/7 ‘push’ and ‘pull’ routine. If you know what I mean!
    Keep up the fantastic work.

      Thanks so much Keiran! :) It is my absolute pleasure and I’m glad to know you found the tips useful. Be sure to check the sister article too: 8 Habits of Highly Productive People, which is a Personal Excellence site hit and classic.

    Congratulations, Celes!

    For any of your Australian readers who weren’t able to obtain a copy, writing the circulation department may yield results. Many retain a limited supply of physical copies, and digital archives should be easily obtainable. However, knowing the value of a physical memento, it may be worth asking.

    Warmest regards,

      Thanks for your well wishes, Andrew! :D I appreciate it. :hug:

  • kapil bhatia

    hi celes, ur posts are very inspiring.
    have u done any coaching for all this or is it all ur real life experiences ?

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi Kapil, they are definitely my real life experiences. I don’t see the point of sharing things that I didn’t already personally experience myself – otherwise there’s no way I can endorse what I say! You can read more here: http://personalexcellence.co/blog/ask-celes-coaching-courses/
